NEW YORK - NOVEMBER 1: A group of Hasidic Jewish girls watch the runners of the 40th ING New York City Marathon pass through the Williamsburg section of the borough of Brooklyn on November 1, 2009 in New York City. Meb Keflezighi who won New York City Marathon was the first American champion to do so since 1982 in the time 2:09.15. More than 40,000 people participated in the event.

Some of these comments make me think that maybe not everyone is aware of how Hasidic people dress? I grew up in NY near one of the largest Hasidic communities in the US, so I'm always thrown off when someone gapes at Hasidic people, or asks if they're Amish. #newyorkcitymarathon
